Jariye quickly jumped down from the bowls of the ceiling. He took extra precaution to descend gently without arousing suspicion. He and Simon carefully crept back into the gardens, ditched the overall coats and headed for the high wall. They climed up the fence and jumped onto the other side. “I am glad you too made it out safely,” Millicent said with relief. “Did you manage to find out anything?” “Yes, Madubene is working with Chief Ukadieme and Dr. Ishigazu,” Jariye answered. “I feel like confronting him, but that will not be necessary. I need to pretend as though I had no idea so I can find out what they are driving at.” “They want you to unearth enough information to bring a court case against Juliet Iningo,” Simon answered. “It is obvious Jariye. They want you to bring down Juliet and Abugu. Quite frankly, those two need to be brought down, but we need to find out if Madubene and his group actually killed Maxwell Iningo. We need evidence to substantiate our thoughts,” Millicent pointed out.

“Let’s put a plan in place. I will try to look through Madubene’s house to see if there is anything I can find out,” Jariye began to lay down a plan. “You guys should work on Dr. Ishigazu. Find out everything you can about him. Who is his mother? Where had he been all these years? I want information on the nurse you spoke to earlier. I need to find out if she is willing to testify against Dr. Ishigazu in court. Also, I would like to talk to your link in Chief Ukadieme’s house. I need to get a listening device in that study. I need to listen to whatever they have to discuss next Wednesday,” he explained. Millicent gave him the phone number of the nurse and a gardener in Chief Ukadieme’s house. They parted ways for the time being to begin scooping out information on their targets.

By the time Jariye arrived at the house where he and Madubene had been staying while investigating the case, Madubene was already home. “I fried some egg. Would you like some with tea?”  He asked Jariye when he returned. “Yes, I am starving.” He scooped a slab of fried egg into a flat plate and placed it in front of Jariye who sank into a chair at the dining table. Madubene returned to the kitchen while Jariye gobbled down the egg with ravenous appetite. Soon, Madubene returned with a cup of tea. “Thanks,” said Jariye. “You are welcome. So, where were you last night? Did you come up with anything?” He asked Jariye. Jariye knew that Madubene wanted to find out if he had spotted him last night.

“The whole thing was a false chase,” he answered casually. “I found neither Millicent nor the person that sent the messages to me. I decided to spend the rest of the night with Ozama Ashinbaye’s mother. I had not seen her since Ozama disappeared,” Jariye answered carefully. He watched Madubene from the corner of his eye. He was studying his face intensely. “It is a pity that she has not been found yet,” Madubene answered. “How is her mother?” “She is still heart-broken, but she is praying fervently for her daughter’s safe return. You know, her husband died years back. She raised those children alone. If someone has killed that girl, the person must be heartless, and when I find them, I am going to put a bullet in their skull,” Jariye said.  Madubene said nothing. He shook his head as though he was feeling sorry for Ozama’s mother.

“So, what are you up to next? I have been listening to the device we installed in Juliet Iningo’s car. I think we might have enough now to bring a case against her. You should listen to the DVDs. I have them set out for you in the room.” “That is great. I will certainly listen to them tonight. In the meantime, I have to go to the hospital where Maxwell Iningo died. I hear there was foul play in his surgery, which led to his death. That is the best piece of information Ozama’s mother gave me. She said that she found a note in Ozama’s room stating that Maxwell may have been killed in the hospital. I am not sure this is true, but it is worth looking into. If there is any substance behind that story, then Juliet and Abugu must have a doctor who is working with them in case the shooting did not take out Maxwell,” Jariye explained.

“That sounds far-fetched,” Madubene answered casually. “I agree with you Madu, but something in me urges me to check it out. You know, sometimes our spirits speak to us. I definitely think like my spirit is speaking to me about this or rather, something is speaking to my spirit and I want to check it out. If in the end there is not much to it, then I’ll let it be. I won’t give it much time. I will be back soon,” Jariye said as he shuffled to the exit door. “See you later! I will be talking to Abugu’s driver today. I managed to get across to him at the tennis club. He might be a minefield of information,” he announced, keen on grabbing Jariye’s attention. “That is great. I will hear all about it when I return,” Jariye said.

He dashed downstairs, jumped in his car and drove off. When he reached the end of the street, he hopped off and entered another car he had prearranged with Martin and had Martin drive his car away. Meanwhile, while Madubene was busy in the kitchen, Jariye has inserted a listening device on his phone. He knew Jariye would make a quick call immediately concerning his mention of the hospital where Maxwell Iningo died. Jariye’s first call was to Chief Ukadieme and then to Ishigazu. They all advised him to stay calm and watch. “He can’t find out anything. You must stay calm and watch him. In the meantime, talk to Geraldine! She needs to be aware. Also, find out what Ozama’s mother knows. If she is in possession of such document, then you must kill her,” both the Chief and the doctor’s son suggested to Madubene.  On Jariye’s suggestion, Millicent had already moved Ozama’s mother to a safe house outside town.

Who is Queen Geraldine? Jariye wondered. He kept listening as he drove to find out who Madubene would call next. There was no other call. There has to be another number, a safe and secure number he uses to call Geraldine whoever she is, Jariye concluded. He rang up Millicent to find out if she had heard the name before. “I have never heard the name,” Millicent answered. “We have dug up the name of Dr. Ishigazu’s mother,” Millicent added. “Great! What is it?” Jariye asked. “Her original name is Linda Iningo.” “What? Another Iningo? I’ve never heard that name? Who is she?” Jariye threw several questions at Millicent at the same time.

“She is the sister of Maxwell and Peter Iningo. She had an affair with Chief Ukadieme when she was only nineteen. She met Chief Ukadieme when at a party organized by the Iningo’s when Ukadieme was governor. Ukadieme quickly got her pregnant. That was the root of the vendetta between Chief Ukadieme and Maxwell Iningo’s father, who vowed to destroy Ukadieme. To protect his daughter, he sent her abroad in the USA just after she had had the babies; a set of twins – a boy and a girl. Afterwards, she was bundled to Los Angeles with her father’s money, but she never stopped loving Ukadieme who was of course married at the time. I have just spoken to a midwife who delivered both children. They were quickly given up for adoption while Linda was bundled to the US by her parents. Years after, she returned to the country to find her children, and find them she did. For now, we have traced the boy as Dr. Ishigazu while the girl is still missing. Linda Iningo is now Linda Ukadieme. She married Chief Ukadieme when she returned to the country following his wife's passing. It was a quiet wedding and the Ukadieme’s opted to keep the marriage quiet,” Millicent explained.

“That is valuable information Millicent. Now I see why Dr. Ishigazu hates the Iningos; they caused his abandonment at birth. Could Linda Iningo or Linda Ukadieme be the same person as Queen Geraldine?” Jariye asked. “It is possible. We hope to work on that. Wait, I am looking at the paper I got from the midwife. Dr. Ishigazu was given the name Gerald at birth by Linda while his twin sister was named Geraldine!” Millicent revealed. Jariye whistled. “She is the other angry twin,” he said in a low tone. “Sounds like it,” Millicent replied.

Madubene sat in the open space behind his house. He sat there to make sure that no one could possibly eavesdrop on him. There was no building or any other structure near his location. He clutched a different phone in hand. He dialed a number and placed the phone to his ear. “Hello,” a voice answered. “This is Madubene.” “I know it is you, what is going on?” The voice asked. “Jariye found out something about Dr. Ishigazu. He does not know who he is though, but he claims that Mrs. Ashinbaye, Ozama’s mother has a note that suggests a doctor at the hospital was involved in Maxwell Iningo’s death.”

There was silence over the line. “Do you think he will be able to dig up anything?” The voice finally asked. “I don’t think so,” Madubene answered. “Are you sure? I don’t want anything affecting my brother. I have spoken to him already and he thinks there is no real evidence that Jariye can unearth, but the mere accusation alone is enough to taint his name,” the voice explained carefully. “Do you want me to kill Jariye?” Madubene asked. “I am thinking about that, but if we do, then we will not achieve our aim of crushing the Iningo’s to shreds.” “You are right, but we can shoot them all including Jariye and end this now.” Another silence ensued. “A calculated fall from grace would be way sweeter than just killing them. That would be easy. We have taken out Maxwell; I think the rest of them should be humiliated in public. Already, we have Juliet working with the president to destroy her brother in-law. Let’s keep a close eye on Jariye. If we think he is on to something, we’ll kill him. As for the woman, Mrs. Ashinbaye, kill her without delay!”
